"Many analysts downplay the Affordable Care Act’s effect on companies such as UPS, noting that the move is part of a long-term trend of shrinking corporate medical benefits."

The company that I retired from in 2008 had a policy that the spouse could not be insured by the workers policy if health insurance was offered where the spouse worked. It didn't matter what kind of insurance or how much it cost at their place of work. But to add a spouse was very expensive also.
